For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.
Have you ever had those nights when you just can’t wait for morning to come because you can’t sleep anyhow and you are so overwhelmed with your thoughts and anxieties that you just need the light of day to help you cope? I love this verse but I do think there are times that we try to make it sound like you are just going to bounce right out of bed and you will be filled with overwhelming joy and your day will just run like a fairy tale but I know there are some of you out there that have heartaches that don’t just disappear come morning.
I read this verse over and over this morning and at first that is what I wanted to write; “don’t worry, you have God’s favor on your life and you will be over your tears and full of joy in the morning but this is what God gave me for this verse instead: “You do have God’s favor so make sure you claim it and He will give you the strength to endure what you are going through and your tears haven’t escaped His notice.” So don’t give up this morning if this morning isn’t the morning that finds you dancing, trust Him that He will bring it to pass. I know life isn’t always “fluffy” but God is always there and He is always ready to help you through so you can have your joy back!
Lean on Him today, press into Him and expect His deliverance and favor to show up! Your hope is always in God and He will give you the strength you need day to day and you will find His joy will fill you as He pours into you day by day.
I am praying today that whatever your heartache may be that God will replace your tears with His joy and that the answers you are looking for will come quickly! God loves you more than words can say and truly the best is yet to come!
